Review for Community Combined Ministries, Martinsburg, WV, USA
My very first experience with Community Combined Ministries (CCM) was Community Day in the Park a few years ago. I was overwhelmed with all of the free food and resources being given to the community by this ministry. I remember when my family started volunteering with CCM at Eagle School Intermediate; I was amazed there were over a hundred volunteers helping out. Before we began, everyone made a large circle, joined hands and prayed over the food that was going to be distributed to the children in need. The worship band played and the Lord's presence filled the room! I was amazed by the amount of food in one room, thinking it must have costed thousands of dollars, and learned this would feed nearly a thousand children every weekend and during holiday breaks right here in Berkeley and Jefferson Counties! Wow! Everyone, young and old, did a little, but made a BIG difference as they worked together! The bags were packed, counted and would soon be delivered to the children's schools. It was not long before I realized I wanted to be a part of this wonderful ministry so I became a board member. I feel blessed to work alongside such a dedicated team of individuals.
The President and founder of CCM, Diana Wall, was given the vision of CCM by God in 2007. I was surprised to learn that Diana had to stop working as the ministry started growing and more time was needed to devote to it. Diana sacrificially gives of her time, talents and treasures to this awesome ministry and she is a fearless leader! CCM is celebrating 10 years in ministry! To God be the honor and glory! I pray God will continue to bless this special ministry and you will consider joining our CCM family!
